So it’s been a few weeks so I thought I would update everyone on the progress we have been making in setting up our new store. So far it has been a nightmare. What was supposed to be quick and easy has created a disaster zone. There have been a few gems that we have taken away from this and that has been all the local businesses we have had the privilege of dealing with. One company Perth Solar Power Installations were a delight. They had an extremely professional attitude to their work and were quite clearly passionate about their work. We bought solar panels from them, they buy internet TV from us. Win/win.
So despite the current downward trend our store renovations are taking us there are some good moments along the way. Our flooring is all done, solar panels and window tinting finished thanks to great local businesses. Laptop repaired and upgraded thanks to another and the banks/ accountants are still very happy with the profits we are making.
Despite the lack of ‘store front’ our staff have risen to the challenge and we had more sales this month than ever before. I think this might have something to do with the fact that none of my staff actually want to hang around and help out in the store, they would rather be out on the road haha. That is fine by me because at the end of the day, that is what I pay them to do….make sales and people happy.
We have still been receiving a lot of support from our friends/ family and of course local businesses. The local businesses was quite a surprising one, we really didn’t know what to expect when dealing with them, if we would be treated like ‘another job’ or part of the local community. Lucky for us we fell into the latter category and have hopefully made some friendships that will serve us well in to the future both immediate and far. If there are any businesses out there who are reading this then please stop by, you don’t need to buy anything, we won’t harass you (we know what that feels like). We would just simply like to meet new people and continue to expand our networks. Feel free to drop us a line or just give us a call.
Well that is about me done for the night, I hope everyone has had a productive day and an even better tomorrow.
